along party lines to move chuck hagel's defense secretary nomination to the full senator. the senator combat veteran and wildly successful businessman will need 60 votes to overcome a filibuster from his own party. here is leader mitch mcconnell mcconnell's logic. >> sometimes you want to kill a nomination. there are a number of members of the committee who feel that the quest for information has not yet been met. >> michael: is that guy ever ever smiled? he said he has not disclosed more of his income. harry reid said he's planning to build a vote for hagel later on this week. in other nominations reid seems to be playing air traffic controller. >> we need to get to brennan. we have jack lew. we have cordray and getting that done. >> michael: those are read anything but smooth sailing. we have l. joy williams and joe williams, in case you're wondering they're not related. i thank both williamss for being here. >> so far as we know. >> michael: we got to bond this right away guys. we got to brand it right away. joe, i want to talk to you about chuck hagel main republican senator repor
chuck hagel's nomination. let's listen to senator reid reacting to the republicans holding up hagel's nomination. >> but it's shocking that my republican colleagues would leave the nation without a fully empowered secretary of defense. for the sake of our national security, it's time to put aside this political theater. and that's what it is. it's tragic that they've decided to filibuster this qualified nominee. it is really unfortunate. >> can you give us the status of this whole thing and explain where we are in the process? >> as we know, the republicans did not allow a vote to happen. they invoke cloture which means it's on hold. what's happened now is the congress on a break for a week, chuck hagel's got to wait around. and there's a concern, i think, at the white house and other areas that something could come up. that's what people are looking for. the white house is expressing confidence. president obama said he's confident this will happen. and other administration officials have put the word out that they are confident. but whether it happens or not after congress gets bac
-level officers and enlisted that are so important to the leadership of our military and chuck hagel's leadership and commitment will be critical to that task. i have met with chuck hagel privately, i've asked him tough questions about iran and israel. i'm satisfied on those points that he will advise the president in according to with -- in accord with those policies but even more important i am struck by his passion, the intensity of his commitment to our men and women in uniform. his caring about them is indicated in so many ways. spontaneously and strongly in his testimony, as well as his private conversations. he will make sure that sexual assault in the military, the epidemic and scourge of rape and assault against men and women who serve and sacrifice for this country will be stopped, that there will be, in fact, zero tolerance not only in word but in deed. and his viewing, for example, of the documentary "invisible war," his understanding that this kind of misconduct is an outrage never to be even implicitly condoned and to be treated as a criminal offense, the most extreme kind of predat
endorsed chuck hagel strongly and enthusiastically. men and women who served in both democratic and republican administrations. among them, bob gates, william cohen, madeleine albright, bill perry, thomas pickering. these are women who have -- men and women who devoted themselves to protecting the united states. they've done it with extraordinary energy and effectiveliness. in this list of our secretaries defense that will rank as the best we've ever had. they have absolute confidence that chuck hagel can and should do this job. you have in this list ambassadors who have handled the delicate, difficult issues involving international diplomacy. you have several ambassadors who have been ambassadors to the state of israel who strongly support senator hagel. all these individuals know him, they know perhaps as well if not better than many of my colleagues and myself the threats, the dangers and opportunities that face this country and they are strongly supporting chuck hagel. in fact, they have concluded, in a letter, that he is uniquely qualified to meet the challenges facing the
nothing about the personal compensation chuck hagel received in 2008, 2009 or 2010. we do not know, for example, if he receives compensation for giving paid speeches at extreme for radical groups. given the two letters he received, it is a fair inference to assume that he and those handling his nomination assembled that information, assembled his compensation, and the only reasonable inference i think is when they a symbol that there was something in there that they did not want to make public. it may be that he spoke at radical or extreme groups are anti-israel groups and accepted financial compensation. we don't know. it may be that he received extraordinary payments from defense contractors, which i would suggest as a matter of conflict of interest. this committee and the senate would be interested in. we don't know what it was because he simply said no. i will not tell you the compensatcompensat ion i personally have received. and i will point out on this question, i agree with senator harry reid. when it came to the nomination of john bold, and in a of members of this body ask

to the point. we'll see. let's talk about chuck hagel. bill kristol wrote an interesting piece on the importance of reconsidering these nominations. he used harriet miers as an example. any chance of that. >> with respect to harriet miers, the conservative opposition to her nomination to the supreme court came out pretty early and they made a strong case that she was less qualified and others and we got samuel alito who has served with distinction since he was placed on the high court. with respect to chuck hagel what is interesting to me is to see what democrats come out and oppose his nomination. he had a miserable appearance. it was a disaster when he testified last week. you heard that from people who were paid to defend the administration like robert gibbs said he was unprepared and unimpressive. martha: where does it go from here? do it look like lit pass to you or is there any sort of -- you mention robert gibbs groundswell for reconsideration. >> we have a senator from nebraska say he intends to support the nomination. and of course hagel served from nebraska. what will
we're dealing with. that's the same kind of people that are in leadership in iran that chuck hagel wants to go have better relationships with. and i would submit that whoever he were willing to see in tehran, as our ambassador there , would have a high probability of suffering the same consequences that massoud's father-in-law did, the same that his brother did. his brother, such a great warrior, political figure, great charisma, his case he was asked to give an interview to a television crew. he consented not being aware that the television camera was full of explosives and that the cameraman and the reporter were willing to blow themselves up so they could kill such a great afghani hero. so they did and he's gone. how many americans are we going to have to continue to lose in afghanistan? talking to billy and karen vaughn, the parents of great american patriot aaron vaughn, seal team six member, one of the seal team that went after osama bin laden who don't want publicity while they're seal members actively. they don't seek it, don't want it and there's always been agreement that
hours the democratically controlled senate will once again hold a test vote on the nominee chuck hagel. he failed to meet the 60-vote threshold earlier this month amid concerns about his record. it was the first time the senate successfully filibustered a cabinet nominee. a final vote could be held tomorrow if hagel reaches 60 votes. >> notice anything different in these pictures? apparently first lady michelle obama's oscar dress is a little racy for iran, so they photo shopped it. during a report on the oscars, the first lady's dress suddenly had a high neckline and sleeves. mrs. obama helped announce "argo" as the winner of best picture which iranian officials also slammed as propaganda for the c.i.a. calling the oscars politically motivated. i actually like the dress on the right. i don't know what that means. >>brian: i didn't know iran had colorforms. what does iran think about the way ben affleck think about the way it was depicted? do you think it was for diplomatic reasons where they captured our hostages? do we skew that? >>steve: iran said it is basically farcical about the
